University of Toronto - John M. Kelly Library


The John M. Kelly Library is the largest federated college library at UofT. It is also one of more than 40 libraries at the university. Although our collections cover a wide range of subjects, we tend to focus on humanities disciplines including Catholic theology, the Middle Ages, book history and media, Celtic Studies, and English, French, Italian, Slavic and German literature.

The John M. Kelly Library's print collection of over 300,000 volumes is developed in support of undergraduate programs in the Faculty of Arts and Science, graduate programs in the Faculty of Theology, and programs of the Continuing Education Division. In the past few years, the collection has been the highest circulating on the St. George campus outside of Robarts, the main university library.

The collection is particularly strong in the areas of philosophy, the history of Ireland, Celtic languages and literature, British and Canadian history, book history, English literature, and the history of the Middle Ages. The Catholic theological collection, perhaps the strongest such collection in Canada, emphasizes patristics, early and medieval church history, Thomism, the Bible (especially Canon, Johannine literature, and the history of criticism), liturgical renewal, religious education, and ecotheology.

The library also actively collaborates with the main university library in the selection, maintenance and delivery of one of the worlds most extensive collections of electronic scholarly resources.

Books from the St. Michael's College Library (John M Kelly Library) at the University of Toronto.

The quality of Jenson's books influenced greatly the revival of fine printing in Britain in the nineteenth century. The great British typographer Stanley Morison (1889-1967) once said that Jenson produced "the...
